I am an Arthurophile, if such a word exists, and have read many Arthur related novels so was pleased when this appeared on my ereader. I was impressed by the writing, the author is gifted. The problem for me was to write in such a crowded market such as anything Arthur related, one must have a unique angle as most of the tales have already been told. In this novel the unique angle is that a lot of the characters seem to be bi-sexual. Maybe in the Brythonic era sexuality was more relaxed, particularly after being impressed by the Romans, but this was a distraction for me and pulled me away from the story and slowed the flow. There were shades of Bernard Cornwell here, the narration coming from someone close to Arthur rather than Arthur himself. Apart from the niggles mentioned I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Dark Age fiction, and coming in at nearly 500 pages it's great value for money. Awake, King Arthur

Found this to be good easy reading about King Arthur obviously lots of poetic licence but an enjoyable read for people who like novels with an historical background, have bought book two.

I have read a fair number of books on Arthurian legend. Sadly this was not one to be remembered. I will not read any more in the series .I did not expect poorly depicted soft core porn

I have to say that I am now glad I picked up the first book, the storyline is superb and has kept me interested throughout. Now looking forward to the third book
